New Album Mourning Phoebe Is Out Now, Via Thirteen 772 Music



The path trodden by most UK Rock bands since the
glory days of The Beatles, Sabbath, Maiden, Priest, The Who, Purple
and Zeppelin has been a lonely one. Punk cleared the way for Duran
Duran, Culture Club, Wham! and ultimately Rick Astley… Vive la

Shunned in their home country it wasn’t easy for Brits playing
‘classic rock’.  Even a minor blip in the mid to late 80’s only
produced success for Whitesnake (who sacked their British members) and
Def Leppard. Bands like FM, The Quireboys, and Thunder had to take a
back seat to American rockers such as Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Poison,
Metallica, and Guns N’ Roses.  Said UK bands then had to watch as
grunge flooded the plains leaving them up sh*t creek without even a
raft, let alone paddle.  As this happened the UK looked to Peter
Andre, Take That and eventually The Spice Girls as its major players.

Evilyn Strange have been around since the Britpop darlings Suede,
Blur, Radiohead, Pulp and Oasis.  Laughed at by the press since day
one for having long hair and playing guitar solo’s it hasn’t been easy
for the Anglo Swedish trio.  Did they care? As Adam Ant once said,
‘Ridicule is nothing to be scared of…’

So here’s Mourning Phoebe, the flawed (and all the more perfect for
it) album by the type of band that the UK doesn’t want to exist.  They
won’t win a Brit Award like Boyzone, and they will NEVER be cool
enough to appear on MTV… but they can just about live with

Kind regards,

Grandpa Strange.

  1. Evilyn Strange is actually to cool to be featured on a now reality trash program such as MTV, also their music is not flawed, their music is simply a brilliant work of art, so i beg to differ on those two quotes! Someday they will make it big around the entire world, that is if the fans continue to support their great music! @Metal_Eternity …Ray…
